According to Amazon, Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) offers a reliable, highly scalable, hosted queue for storing messages as they travel between computers. By using Amazon […]

CEP is Not a Just a Technology and Not Just a Tool

Posted on 11/10/08 7 Comments

I read the debate (here, here and here) on how Complex Event Processing (CEP) fits into the wider software architectural themes of Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) and Event Driven Architectures (EDA).  More comments and blog posts followed (including this one, and this one).   Frankly speaking, I was surprised to see so much misunderstanding on fundamental […]

The Genesis of Complex Event Processing: Asymmetric Capabilities

Posted on 09/29/08 No Comments

More often than not, folks working in the field of complex event processing do not truly understand CEP.   We often see the same folks try to position and mischaracterize CEP as business process orchestration, business process management, event-driven architecture or even an evolution of service-oriented architecture.    Well-intended, this mischaracterization of CEP is often for sales […]

In respose to CEP is Not BPM, BAM, BRE, BRMS or SOA, fellow blogger Mark Palmer posts, Smart Order Routing and CEP – Made for Each Other.   Mark does a good job describing his perspective on smart order routing (SOR), yet his counterpoint that SOR is “complex event processing” is quite unconvincing. I agree with Mark that SOR is […]

A post in  Technology content of current CEP products? reminds me of why I rarely, if ever, agree with anything that comes out of Aleri’s marketing team.   To fair to Jeff, it is not only Aleri but others, who continually misdefine business process management (BPM) as CEP. Jeff uses the example, “Smart Order Routing” as an example […]

CEP is to Architecture as SOA is to Architecture

Posted on 07/25/08 1 Comment

I am often asked pointed questions (mostly from the stream processing crowd) like, ” What product does CEP?”  Sometime it seems my answer determines the fate of that relationship, as my feet are grilled over the CEP-fire to be beat of jungle drums!  The amount of money I have lost in deals that did not […]

Posted on 07/13/08 No Comments

In  On Messaging and Events asks, “Is event processing just fancy name to message processing ?” Most event processing systems would be incomplete without the ability to process events in the form of messages.   Messages can be delivered in either a connection-oriented protocol or a connectionless protocol.   Most enterprise-class messaging systems have both.   Many messaging systems have […]
